Quickly do the math and you’ll realize that the last time content was shared on this site was almost four years ago. Time has flown and I can't believe it's been that long since I've brought you new content. I promise that will never happen again!
I've been living life the past four years, with some major milestones in between. Unfortunately, my family experienced the passing of my mother, I also started and completed graduate school and I welcomed a daughter with my husband, who is now almost two years-old. Suffice it to say, I've been busy.
I've recommitted to showcasing outstanding women and the moves they make. So head over to womenmakingmoves.com for up-to-date content. I look forward to seeing you there!

The feature was an eye opening experience for many, as you can see from the Twitter conversations that took place during and after the show. A number of people expressed the lack of knowledge they had regarding the city and its problems. Many were disappointed that the Dateline feature only included negative aspects of Detroit and failed to showcase the positive things taking place in Detroit. One Twitter user, David Murray, shared a tweet encouraging residents to turn any anger they may have towards the special to doing something positive for the city. His tweet immediately reminded me of a story I read in the January 2010 edition of Essence Magazine about Kim Worthy, the Wayne County Prosecutor who has become "the conscience of Detroit." Ms. Worthy is best known for convicting Detroit's corrupt former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick. Like others, Ms. Worthy knows a radical change is needed to save Detroit. And she does her part by helping to keep the city as safe as possible.
The special may provide the boost needed to turn Detroit around. A drastic overhaul of the city, starting with innovative ideas, can help Detroit be even better than it was in it's heyday from the auto industry. Women Making Moves salutes Ms. Worthy and others who are making Detroit a great city again. Since the conversation has started, we would like you to share your thoughts on turning around Detroit. I believe the focus should be education. Once that foundation is established, the possibilities are endless. Please provide your ideas for Detroit in the comments section.Women, start making your Moves today!
